I'm speechless. I used 30$ on buying this DVD. How could I know what to expect... To put it in one sentence: This is the biggest collection of crappy edited together awful scenes ever. You would think that the moron of a director Albert Puyan was TRYING to make the worst movie ever. Anyways, it seems he did it. Hooray for you. I've watched a few movies of Albert before too... I thought that a movie couldn't get worse then for example 'Ticker' and 'Crazy Six' but good old Albert was just warming up with those.

There isn't even ONE thing that is good about it. Maybe when Fat Joe and Big Pun (a couple of fat rappers or something) couldn't say one line without looking at a script, and had to gasp for air like a whale after every sentence they composed.

Now let's analyze why it's such a plain bad movie...

The special effects... What did these people film this movie with? It look so bad that you could believe they drawed the movie on a paper. When the church burned at the beginning it's like they used a computer and MS Paint 95 to draw lotsa red on top of the church image who is supposed to look like flames. When I saw that I had a laughter kick. It's so ugly it's funny. The only thing they put some soul into, must be the cover with fake comments and etc. on it, to fool people into buying this... this thing.

The plot... What plot? Well, as far as I understood (even thou I only watched about 15 minutes of it, which was way too much) Snoop Dogg is a preacher whose family was shot by some drug lords (the fat rappers) and the preacher transforms into a demon who will revenge his familys death. The rest of the movie is filmed inside an ugly building where some assasins enter every now and then to kill Snoop. But they can't because Snoop stares at them till they die with his demonic eyes or something, and in some underground cave-room with the druglords, fat rappers whatever, which really reminds me of Yabba The Hut.

The music by Ice-T is also something of the worst crap i've ever heard and i'm a big fan of rap music. And the ridicilous introduction also by Ice-T...? That's so stupid it's nearly funny. This whole film is a huge joke. And a bad one. If anyone I know would cause me again to this joke I would kill them. It's not "one of the worst movies ever made", it's THE worst movie ever made. And i've even seen 'Da Hip Hop Witch'. It shall actively be avoided at any cost, an with all honesty -I would rather jump into a volcano then watch a second more of this big pile of s***. Sorry to use words like this, but it's the only way to describe it. The only way it may be used, is if there is no good movies left at your local movie rent store, you can just rent a crappy movie, and watch five minutes of Urban Menace before the crappy movie. The crappy movie will then seem like an Oscar-winner. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a movie to burn.

I hope i've gotten out my point... :> Thanks for reading.
